Why is it Important to have a Mobile Responsive Listing Template Design?

Since the release of smartphones, there are more users browsing the internet from mobile devices – mobile web browsing has been steadily growing, overtaking the traditional computer in October 2016, with mobile and tablet browsing accounting for 51.3% compared to the desktop’s 48.7%, according to data from web analytics firm StatCounter.

Mobile compatibility is very important, not just for growing traffic, but Google favors mobile friendly websites for its mobile search results.

Due to this increase, we now see more mobile users on eBay as well, more than 55% of eBay’s transactions coming from mobile devices, and this number increases yearly. Think of optimization as transforming a listing to make it more “mobile friendly”. Mobile devices, such as cell phones or tablets, have much smaller screens than desktops and laptops. Optimization makes sure that a listing still looks good and works well when viewed on a smaller screen.
